This month Rich Ferraro is joined by Steven Toplis, the Maradona Of The Midlands and Baz, to look back at a tricky set of fixtures for the Reds. There were two frustrating home defeats to Preston North End and Queen’s Park Rangers, but also encouraging away displays (for entirely different reasons) at Aston Villa and Derby County. We review the defensive difficulties of losing three of your centre-halves, and the knock-on effect at full-back, discuss the importance of the holding midfield roles, and whether Aitor Karanka’s tactical shuffles have been (and can be) effective.
As ever, we have the Forest Ramble Sketch, in which Jeremy Davies takes a nostalgic look back at some of the memorable Forest fixtures over the years, to give you something to look up rather than endless repeats over the festive period.
